He joined the Augustinian Order in 1458 and wrote his first Latin dictionary, Cornucopiae. His books were heavily expanded upon, growing in size as they added more and more languages. In addition to Latin, this one features Hebrew, Greek, Gallic, Italian, German, Spanish and English. The cornerstone of any antiquarian reference collection.
